Top Ten Tuesday: Signs You’re a Book Lover

Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday!  This week’s topic is Signs You’re a Book Lover.  I’m betting most of us here have more than a passing interest in books.  Lets jump right into my list!

You have books in multiple formats.-Hard cover, paperback, e-books, and audio books.  There are so many different ways to enjoy books now!  I’ll admit I don’t have any audio books….yet.

You have the same book in multiple formats.-There are so many gorgeous special editions out there!

You take a book with you everywhere.-I almost always have a book tucked into my purse.  You just never know when you’ll have a few spare minutes to read!

Books are an essential item to pack when traveling.-I always take several books with me when I travel, even if I’m just visiting family for the weekend.  That way I have multiple reading options depending on my mood.

Bookstores are travel destinations.-When I’m on vacation or visiting family/friends, I like to check out the local, independent bookstores.  They all have a unique atmosphere and selection. levitra australia online If you do not have time to drive your car a racing school, you will enjoy the adrenaline rush like you never experienced before in your life, as well as make new, lifelong friends.

Your local bookstore is a home away from home.-I love my local bookstore!

Anything can be a bookmark.-Scraps of paper, receipts, index cards, envelopes, etc.

You collect bookmarks.-There was a Top Ten Tuesday post on bookmarks a while back.  That list can be found here.

You can’t count the number of times you’ve said, “The book was better than the movie.”-There are very few exceptions to this, in my opinion.

Space for books is a priority.-My husband thought we needed more storage space in the kitchen.  I thought I needed bigger bookshelves….he built me a floor to ceiling bookshelf.

What do you think?  Do you relate to any of these?  What do you think are signs you’re a book lover?


  1. This week the lists are so much the same. We may not enjoy the same books, but we all enjoy reading.

  2. I can definitely relate to a lot of these!
    My TTT:

  3. I’m guilty of all of these, for sure!

    • Poinsettia says

      Yep, I think many of us have several of these in common!

      Thank you for visiting and commenting. 🙂

  4. Definitely many of these! I buy Marie Lu’s books in both Kindle and hardback editions now. I have a small audiobook collection. I almost always have a book with me. I think the only exception is when I go for a walk to the park. I even take a book to the grocery store, although I usually don’t use it there.

    • Poinsettia says

      I think the grocery store is probably one of the only places I don’t take a book!

      Thanks for visiting and commenting. 🙂

  5. Oh yes, about the books being better than the movie!! I also collect bookmarks, yet I’m always end up using random things in a pinch. haha.

    • Poinsettia says

      I’m so glad you enjoyed my list! I’m the same way with bookmarks. Ha!

      Thank you for visiting and commenting. 🙂

  6. Oh it’s very rare that the movie is better than the book!!!

  7. Yay for husbands who understand (or at least humor) our love of books! 😉 And I agree, rarely is the movie better than the book! Great list!

    • Poinsettia says

      I’m so glad you enjoyed my list!

      Yes, I’m glad my husband humors me in my love of books!

      Thank you for visiting and commenting. 🙂

  8. I collect bookmarks too, but never use them somehow… 😉

    • Poinsettia says

      I’ve been trying to use mine more often. I still end up using other things in a pinch quite often though!

      Thanks for visiting and commenting. 🙂

  9. Ha ha. Smart husband! Mine had a huge bookshelf custom built for me for my birthday a few years ago. It’s awesome!

    Happy TTT!


    • Poinsettia says

      Yes, I definitely appreciate the huge bookshelf my husband built. It takes up an entire wall. I love it so much!

      Thank you for stopping by and commenting. 🙂

  10. Right before the coronavirus epidemic closed our libraries and hustled over and checked out nine books. I love my public library. What a bargain. Books for free! I am a book lover

  11. Your list is way to relatable!

  12. I love all the book formats now but it also makes me have to keep track of which ones I want in physical as well as e- form. Not that i mind this problem. 🙂

    • Poinsettia says

      Yes, keeping track of all the books can be challenging, but as you said, it is a problem I don’t mind having!

      Thanks for visiting and commenting. 🙂

  13. I think I relate to them all, especially bringing a book when travelling! I don’t think I’ve gone anywhere without bringing books before.

  14. verushka says

    Oh I use *everything* I can as a bookmark too! AND I love taking books with me everywhere, — especially on my e-reader and phone apss!

    • Poinsettia says

      It is funny how many things can be bookmarks! 🙂 E-readers are definitely great for taking multiple books without taking up too much space.

      Thanks so much for visiting and commenting. 🙂

  15. The travelling one is so true – we used to take a big bag just for books on family holidays…

  16. Haha these are all so relatable! I also always have a book with me, even if I won’t have time to read, I just need to have one, just in case 🙂

  17. When I get involved with writing, or editing my books, as I’m doing now, getting my “orphans” self-published through Smashwords, I totally ignore my husband…I ignore that it’s getting to be dinner time…I don’t notice anything else, because I’m living in the book, not here! And when I was writing my last book, which just got contracted, there was a young boy in it named James. Husband kept raising an eyebrow at me when I’d talk about our grandson James–we have only 2, and neither are named James! I’m so glad I didn’t slip up like that in front of my son or his wife! They don’t get as involved in books as I do–they might not have understood.

    As for reading, I keep a book in my truck, so whenever I get stuck at trains, as happens a lot in our town, I have something to read.

  18. I love how “collecting bookmarks” and “using anything as a bookmark” follow up one another. Like. It’s legit THE BOOKWORM WAY. I’m sure I own over 50 bookmarks and still manage to use receipts as my actual bookmark while reading. Maybe it’s a bookworm curse.

    • Poinsettia says

      I agree! It must be a bookworm curse! I have these pretty bookmarks and I don’t manage to use them as much as I would like. So random things end up being my bookmarks instead.

      Thank you for visiting and commenting. 🙂

  19. When I moved countries, my suitcase was more books than clothes! I also made sure my husband cleared a space in his room for my books :p

  20. I used pretty much anything that’s flat (or sometimes not) as a bookmark, or sometimes I don’t even use one. 😉 Don’t feel like I have a LOT of multiple editions of books, but I do have a few, and one cannot leave home without a book. It’s a must. 🙂

    • Poinsettia says

      I have to have a book mark of some kind. Otherwise I can’t keep track of where I am, and I can’t bring myself to dog ear pages.

      Thanks so much for visiting and commenting! 🙂
